Dementia Care and Respite Services Program

The Foundation's Dementia Care and Respite Services Program was designed to expand the availability of dementia-specific day programs, other community and in-home respite services, and related health and supportive services.This Phase II grant will enable the project to determine whether it can expand provision of day programs and other respite and health-related services needed by people with dementia and their caregivers in a financially viable manner. To accomplish this, the grantee will: (1) increase average daily attendance at new dementia-specific day center with a projected census of 18/day by year 4; and (2) increase private pay revenue to 66 percent of total operating expenses (with projected private pay revenue totaling $117,000) and reduce reliance on non-operating revenue from 71 to 3 percent of total operating expenses.
